Eagles’ Byron Maxwell says growing up in the South prepared him for criticism

What happened to Byron Maxwell and the original Seahawks Legion of Boom?

As the leader of the Seattle Seahawks’ secondary, affectionately known as the Legion of Boom, Kam Chancellor has come back to the team at a crucial time.

Maxwell wants to show he is worth the dough against Dallas…

Byron Maxwell has a lot of challenges ahead of him to make his preseason talk stand up… Last year with the Legion of Doom… It’s one thing to say a cornerback “can’t cover” an elite receiver— it’s quite another thing to say a guy is temporarily “lost” in a new system which may have some fundamental design flaws.
